    Subject: Blocking and allowing ActiveX

    Hello all,

    In my company the policy is to disallow ActiveX on the internet segment
    in
    Internet Explorer. However, we find that lots of the sites that users go
    to,
    need ActiveX enabled. So, these sites are entered in the Trusted Zone in
    IE.
    Since we do not use Windows 2K on our domian controllers and we don't
    have
    ADS, it seems we can't use the Group Policy mechanism to add sites to
    the
    trusted zone, our helpdesk has to manually add a site to the trusted
    zone on
    a workstation. We have some 2500 PC's... so, there you have our problem.

    What's your policy on ActiveX and how do you solve, or advise us to
    solve,
    the trusted site issue?

    groetjes,
